Poor service and mediocre food

We initially chose this cruise for a business retreat. We’re a small firm and did a cruise with Royal last year. We liked royal so much we decided to give a different company a try to compare. It was a huge ...

Downs and ups

It was a birthday gift, I just had to pay for excursions, amenities, ect. But little did I know it'd be as much of a pain in the butt, as it was a vacation. Boarding the ship initially was a chore, surprised they do ...

I've been on 13 cruises and 5 were on Norwegian, including a previous Sky trip about 5 years ago. This is the 1st Norwegian cruise I can say disappointed me. The ship is clearly showing its' age and our Inside ...

Impersonal staff, poor food and entertainment

I chose this cruise mostly because of the dates of sailing and the location. I heard/read good reviews for NCL, but this specific ship did not live up to my expectations. The food was not great, mediocre at ...

Smaller boat and staterooms

The staff was very friendly and attentive. My husband uses a CPAP machine you had to pay $35 for an extension cord because there was only one electrical plug in the room. The cost of the wifi packages were also ...

Dissatisfaction and sorrow

We decided to give Norwegian a try after being an adamant Royal Caribbean advocate. We fell hook, line and sinker for their specials and "freebies". Well folks... DO NOT DO IT. What a huge disappointment. The ...

We will not cruise the Norwegian sun again. We never saw our room steward the whole trip. All he/she did was bring fresh towels daily and make or turn down bed. We encountered several rude bartenders and staff. The ...

NCL Sky let me down

NCL had been my favorite cruise line until 8/31/19. It had nothing to do with Hurricane Dorian; they changed our itinerary to Key West and Cozumel. The ship was smoothly sailing but I paid more to get the beverage ...

Such a waste of time and money. I honestly don’t know where to begin. Let me start with the food. The buffet was the worst food I have ever eaten. Worse than cafeteria food. Food was cold, tasteless and thrown ...
